## (p) [0, 25) (25, )

11. The applied domain of P is [0, ). The range is some subset of the natural numbers because
we cannot have fractional Sasquatch. This was a bit of a trick question and well address the
notion of mathematical modeling more thoroughly in later chapters. P(0) = 0 means that
there were no Sasquatch in Portage County in 1803. P(205) 139.77 would mean there were
139 or 140 Sasquatch in Portage County in 2008.

1. Find the domain of f.
2. Find the range of f.
3. Determine f(2).
4. List the x-intercepts, if any exist.
5. List the y-intercepts, if any exist.
6. Find the zeros of f.
7. Solve f(x) < 0.
8. Determine the number of solutions to the
equation f(x) = 1.
9. List the intervals on which f is increasing.
10. List the intervals on which f is decreasing.
11. List the local maximums, if any exist.
12. List the local minimums, if any exist.
13. Find the maximum, if it exists.
14. Find the minimum, if it exists.
15. Does f appear to be even, odd, or neither?
Solution.
1. To nd the domain of f, we proceed as in Section 1.4. By projecting the graph to the x-axis,
we see the portion of the x-axis which corresponds to a point on the graph is everything from
4 to 4, inclusive. Hence, the domain is [4, 4].
2. To nd the range, we project the graph to the y-axis. We see that the y values from 3 to
3, inclusive, constitute the range of f. Hence, our answer is [3, 3].
3. Since the graph of f is the graph of the equation y = f(x), f(2) is the y-coordinate of the
point which corresponds to x = 2. Since the point (2, 0) is on the graph, we have f(2) = 0.

7.4 Ellipses 419
7.4 Ellipses
In the denition of a circle, Denition 7.1, we xed a point called the center and considered all
of the points which were a xed distance r from that one point. For our next conic section, the
ellipse, we x two distinct points and a distance d to use in our denition.
Definition 7.4. Given two distinct points F
1
and F
2
in the plane and a xed distance d, an
ellipse is the set of all points (x, y) in the plane such that the sum of the distance from F
1
to
(x, y) and the distance from F
2
to (x, y) is d. The points F
1
and F
2
are called the foci

We may imagine taking a length of string and anchoring it to two points on a piece of paper. The
curve traced out by taking a pencil and moving it so the string is always taut is an ellipse.
The center of the ellipse is the midpoint of the line segment connecting the two foci. The major
axis of the ellipse is the line segment connecting two opposite ends of the ellipse which also contains
the center and foci. The minor axis of the ellipse is the line segment connecting two opposite
ends of the ellipse which contains the center but is perpendicular to the major axis. The vertices
of an ellipse are the points of the ellipse which lie on the major axis. Notice that the center is also
the midpoint of the major axis, hence it is the midpoint of the vertices. In pictures we have,

Note that the major axis is the longer of the two axes through the center, and likewise, the minor
axis is the shorter of the two. In order to derive the standard equation of an ellipse, we assume that
the ellipse has its center at (0, 0), its major axis along the x-axis, and has foci (c, 0) and (c, 0)
and vertices (a, 0) and (a, 0). We will label the y-intercepts of the ellipse as (0, b) and (0, b) (We
assume a, b, and c are all positive numbers.) Schematically,
(c, 0) (c, 0) (a, 0) (a, 0)
(0, b)
(0, b)
(x, y)
x
y
Note that since (a, 0) is on the ellipse, it must satisfy the conditions of Denition 7.4. That is, the
distance from (c, 0) to (a, 0) plus the distance from (c, 0) to (a, 0) must equal the xed distance
d. Since all of these points lie on the x-axis, we get
distance from (c, 0) to (a, 0) + distance from (c, 0) to (a, 0) = d
(a + c) + (a c) = d
2a = d
Page 362

7.4 Ellipses 421
In other words, the xed distance d mentioned in the denition of the ellipse is none other than
the length of the major axis. We now use that fact (0, b) is on the ellipse, along with the fact that
d = 2a to get
distance from (c, 0) to (0, b) + distance from (c, 0) to (0, b) = 2a

(0 (c))

From this, we get a
2

2
+c
2
, or b
2
= a
2
c
2
, which will prove useful later. Now consider a point
(x, y) on the ellipse. Applying Denition 7.4, we get
distance from (c, 0) to (x, y) + distance from (c, 0) to (x, y) = 2a

(x (c))
2
+ (y 0)
2

(x c)

+ (y 0)
2
= 2a

(x + c)
2

2

(x c)

In order to make sense of this situation, we need to do some rearranging, squaring, and more

7.5 Hyperbolas 433
7.5 Hyperbolas
In the denition of an ellipse, Denition 7.4, we xed two points called foci and looked at points
whose distances to the foci always added to a constant distance d. Those prone to syntactical
tinkering may wonder what, if any, curve wed generate if we replaced added with subtracted.
The answer is a hyperbola.
Definition 7.6. Given two distinct points F
1
and F
2
in the plane and a xed distance d, a
hyperbola is the set of all points (x, y) in the plane such that the absolute value of the dierence
of the distances between the foci and (x, y) is d. The points F
1
and F
2
are called the foci of the
hyperbola.

and
the distance from F

to (x

, y
2
) the distance from F
1
to (x

) = d
Note that the hyperbola has two parts, called branches. The center of the hyperbola is the
midpoint of the line segment connecting the two foci. The transverse axis of the hyperbola is
the line segment connecting two opposite ends of the hyperbola which also contains the center and
foci. The vertices of a hyperbola are the points of the hyperbola which lie on the transverse axis.
In addition, we will show momentarily that there are lines called asymptotes which the branches
of the hyperbola approach for large x and y values. They serve as guides to the graph. In pictures,

and asymptotes (dashed)
Before we derive the standard equation of the hyperbola, we need to discuss one further parameter,
the conjugate axis of the hyperbola. The conjugate axis of a hyperbola is the line segment
through the center which is perpendicular to the transverse axis and has the same length as the
line segment through a vertex which connects the asymptotes. In pictures we have

Note that in the diagram, we can construct a rectangle using line segments with lengths equal to
the lengths of the transverse and conjugate axes whose center is the center of the hyperbola and
whose diagonals are contained in the asymptotes. This guide rectangle, which is very similar to
the one we created in the Section 7.4 to help us graph ellipses, will aid us in graphing hyperbolas
when the time comes.
Suppose we wish to derive the equation of a hyperbola. For simplicity, we shall assume that the
center is (0, 0), the vertices are (a, 0) and (a, 0) and the foci are (c, 0) and (c, 0). We label the
Page 365
Taken from Stitz and Zeager
7.5 Hyperbolas 435
endpoints of the conjugate axis (0, b) and (0, b). (Although b does not enter into our derivation,
we will have to justify this choice as you shall see later.) As before, we assume a, b, and c are all
positive numbers. Schematically we have
x
y
(a, 0) (a, 0)
(0, b)
(0, b)
(c, 0) (c, 0)
(x, y)
Since (a, 0) is on the hyperbola, it must satisfy the conditions of Denition 7.6. That is, the distance
from (c, 0) to (a, 0) minus the distance from (c, 0) to (a, 0) must equal the xed distance d. Since
all these points lie on the x-axis, we get
distance from (c, 0) to (a, 0) distance from (c, 0) to (a, 0) = d
(a + c) (c a) = d
2a = d
In other words, the xed distance d from the denition of the hyperbola is actually the length of
the transverse axis! (Where have we seen that type of coincidence before?) Now consider a point
(x, y) on the hyperbola. Applying Denition 7.6, we get
distance from (c, 0) to (x, y) distance from (c, 0) to (x, y) = 2a

(x (c))
2
+ (y 0)

(x c)
2
+ (y 0)
2
= 2a

(x + c)
2
+ y
2

(x c)
2
+ y
2
= 2a
Using the same arsenal of Intermediate Algebra weaponry we used in deriving the standard formula
of an ellipse, Equation 7.4, we arrive at the following.

It is a good exercise to actually work this out.

What remains is to determine the relationship between a, b and c. To that end, we note that since
a and c are both positive numbers with a < c, we get a

so that a
2
c

is a negative number.
Hence, c

The equation above is for a hyperbola whose center is the origin and which opens to the left and
right. If the hyperbola were centered at a point (h, k), we would get the following.

That is, a hyperbola whose branches open to the left and right
If the roles of x and y were interchanged, then the hyperbolas branches would open upwards and
downwards and we would get a vertical hyperbola.

and b, the equation of a vertical hyperbola with center (h, k) is:
(y k)
2
b
2

(x h)
2
a
2
= 1
The values of a and b determine how far in the x and y directions, respectively, one counts from the
center to determine the rectangle through which the asymptotes pass. In both cases, the distance
Page 367
Taken from Stitz and Zeager
7.5 Hyperbolas 437
from the center to the foci, c, as seen in the derivation, can be found by the formula c =

a
2
+ b
2
.
Lastly, note that we can quickly distinguish the equation of a hyperbola from that of a circle or
ellipse because the hyperbola formula involves a dierence of squares where the circle and ellipse
formulas both involve the sum of squares.
Example 7.5.1. Graph the equation
(x 2)
2

y

25
= 1. Find the center, the lines which contain
the transverse and conjugate axes, the vertices, the foci and the equations of the asymptotes.
Solution. We rst see that this equation is given to us in the standard form of Equation 7.6.
Here xh is x2 so h = 2, and y k is y so k = 0. Hence, our hyperbola is centered at (2, 0). We
see that a
2
= 4 so a = 2, and b
2
= 25 so b = 5. This means we move 2 units to the left and right
of the center and 5 units up and down from the center to arrive at points on the guide rectangle.
The asymptotes pass through the center of the hyperbola as well as the corners of the rectangle.
This yields the following set up.

Since the y
2
term is being subtracted from the x
2
term, we know that the branches of the hyperbola
open to the left and right. This means that the transverse axis lies along the x-axis. Hence, the
conjugate axis lies along the vertical line x = 2. Since the vertices of the hyperbola are where the
hyperbola intersects the transverse axis, we get that the vertices are 2 units to the left and right of
(2, 0) at (0, 0) and (4, 0). To nd the foci, we need c =

a
2
+ b
2
=

4 + 25 =

## 29. Since the foci

lie on the transverse axis, we move

## 29 units to the left and right of (2, 0) to arrive at (2

29, 0)
(approximately (3.39, 0)) and (2 +

## 29, 0) (approximately (7.39, 0)). To determine the equations

of the asymptotes, recall that the asymptotes go through the center of the hyperbola, (2, 0), as well
as the corners of guide rectangle, so they have slopes of
b

of a line, Equation 2.2, yields

6. (The Logarithmic Scales) There are three widely used measurement scales which involve
common logarithms: the Richter scale, the decibel scale and the pH scale. The computations
involved in all three scales are nearly identical so pay close attention to the subtle dierences.
